We have come a long way from being cavemen. Gone are the days when man used to place stone slabs, one on top of the other, in order to build houses that would protect them from the harsh forces of nature. With the gradual passage of time, man had started to understand the proper usage of the available resources and with the help of those; he has gradually become able to bend the situation according to his convenience. If we take a moment to pause, we would be able to realize that in the modern times we are all surrounded by many gadgets and machines. In fact, we are so comfortable in this cocoon of technology that it has become almost impossible for us to imagine our lives without the things like a car or an air conditioner. It is a bit intimidating and even a bit scary that how dependent we have become on these things. But who can deny the ease and convenience that these things entail. And it would be utterly wrong to say that the many gifts of technology only facilitate comfort and nothing more. They actually work in providing better security and durability too.
Every sector of work today has been benefitted by the many breakthroughs that the technological world has made in the last few decades. Who would have imagined that the stars we gaze at every night would come within our grasp? Who would have thought that it would be possible to do extensive irrigation in areas as dry a deserts? And who, for that matter, would have imagined that those, who used to live in huts made out of stone and mud, would one day construct buildings that would leave any person who lays eyes on them absolutely dumbstruck. The sheer height and mind boggling designs of modern skyscrapers are enough to make people understand that these are no ordinary feats to achieve. The construction of wide roads and zigzagging flyovers and bridges is equally impressive too. However, it must be mentioned here that none of these would have been possible without the use of latest machines like the cement truck mixer
